Prague 1/2 Marathon Almost Sold Out
Considering the fact that Prague International Marathon has almost sold out all of their starting numbers for the April 1/2marathon, the price of the starting fee with the Via foundation is as of today 1300czk. We would like to thank all our runners and donors for support.
The project was chosen by an expert evaluation committee consisting of the representatives of VIA Foundation (Nadace VIA), which is in charge of the programme, and the programme partners, Česká Spořitelna Foundation (Nadace České společnosti) and NET4GAS, s.r.o company. The winning project was implemented in Francova Lhota, a municipality in the Zlín region on the very border with Slovakia, where an area for relaxation and a playground was created on unused piece of land.
The Via foundation is entering another season of the Prague marathon runs. We would like to hereby invite all running enthusiast and philanthropists to join us for the first of the marathon series, the Hervis Prague Half Marathon 2013. The competition starts on Saturday, 6th April 2013 at midday
We wish you all the best for the upcoming year: May 2013 open up a world of opportunities and fulfilled dreams for you.
Yours, Via Foundation
Dear runners, running season in Prague may be over, but before you know it spring will come again. Since the popularity of Prague International Marathon runs is going up, we would recommend that you purchase your starting numbers in time. The amount of participants is limited while interest in participation is steadily growing.
Another of the Prague Marathon series took place on Saturday, 8th September. 55 brave sportsmen set off for the 5 and 10km races to support the Via foundation. Together they covered the distance of 500km, which means they run all the way from Prague to the Slovakian Tatra mountains.
After a short break we are back for the next PIM race. We hope that the July heat waves did not stop you from your daily training routines. The VIA foundation brings you the most pleasant of the races - the evening run through Prague.
On the turn of May and June 2012, twenty people from five CEE countries met in the seaside resort of Sveti Konstantin near Varna where the second regional meeting of the ViabilityNet program took place. The hosting member of the net, Bulgarian Centre for Not for Profit Law, organized an event that concentrated mainly on the issues of public benefit status and taxation of NGOs.
Here at VIA foundation we do not care much for the phrase „winning isn't everything“. Participating is not enough for us. This attitude helped us raise additional 81 000 czk for our programme Fast grants during the biggest running event of the year, the Prague Marathon.
Dear friends, the Annual Report of 2010
